When it comes to halibut the big 300 lb. barn doors taste like crap compared to the smaller ones. I know that can’t totally be the case with these tuna or they wouldn’t be selling for the prices they are but do the big ones really taste better?
No. It is the age of the fish that makes it more appealing to the Japanese. It has more god like spiritual ora to it from the age. I don’t know if I said it right, but something like that. I fish bluefin for a living.
